When and where is the game?

The matchup between the Chiefs and the Patriots is scheduled to kick off at 6:40 p.m. ET on Sunday, January 20 at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri.

How did both teams get here?

The Chiefs won their first playoff game at home since 1993 as they comfortably saw off the Indianapolis Colts 31-13 in the divisional round last week.

Patrick Mahomes did not have a passing touchdown—although he did record one rushing score—but the Chiefs made light work of the Colts, thanks to a rushing offense that cut Indianapolis at will.

A win on Sunday would see the Chiefs clinch a ticket to the Super Bowl for the first time in the NFL era—they reached it twice in four years before the merger—but come up against a team bidding to become only the third team in history to reach the Super Bowl in three consecutive seasons.

The New England Patriots reached the AFC Championship Game for the eighth consecutive season after dismantling the Los Angeles Chargers in Foxborough last weekend.

The 41-28 win over the Chargers proved that while they might not have been at their best throughout the regular season, those who bet against Tom Brady and the Patriots in the playoffs do so at their peril.

Bill Belichick is 8-4 all-time in conference games, while his Chiefs counterpart Andy Reid is 1-4 in the same scenario. However, what the Chiefs lack in experience, they make it up in home-field advantage. The Patriots are 3-4 on the road in playoff games and have lost both their last two AFC Championship Games on the road, against Denver in 2014 and 2016.

Furthermore, over the last five seasons, the No. 1 seed in the AFC has always made the Super Bowl.

Players to keep an eye on

It is impossible to escape the narrative pitting Mahomes against Brady. The quarterback who became a star in only his second season in the league against the man who is probably the greatest quarterback to ever play the game.

Despite not having a touchdown pass, Mahomes controlled the game superbly on Saturday, while Brady was at his methodical best, completing 34 of 44 passes for 343 yards and one touchdown.

When the two teams met in Week Six in New England, the Patriots won an epic battle 43-40 and their defense did just enough to knock Mahomes off his stride.

The 23-year-old threw for 352 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions, while Brady had only one touchdown but no interceptions as he threw for 340 yards.

At 18 years, the age gap between Mahomes and Bray is the biggest age difference between starting quarterbacks in the history of the NFL playoffs. Will Sunday be the time Brady finally hands over the baton?

CBS will broadcast the game live but, as usual, there are a variety of other options to keep up with the action, including a host of paid streaming services.

DirectTV Now, PlayStation VUE, YouTube TV and Hulu with Live TV  all offer the four major networks and ESPN, but it is worth keeping in mind that their live feed might not be available countrywide.

While all four providers offer on-demand content, in many markets live content is not available, therefore it is worth checking on their websites which live channels are available in your area.

FuboTV will also be streaming the game, while Sling TVsubscribers won’t be able to watch via the platform, as it does not offer CBS. The game will also be available via the CBS app and CBS All Access.

According to OddsShark, the Chiefs are a 3-point favorite, while the over/under is set at 55.5. Kansas City is -165 in moneyline terms, while the Patriots are +149

RAMS VS. SAINTS ODDS, LINE: 2019 NFC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME PICKS, PLAYOFF PREDICTIONS FROM MODEL ON 16-6 NFL ROLL

History appears to favor the New Orleans Saints as they prepare for Sunday’s NFC Championship Game against the visiting Los Angeles Rams. It’s a 3:05 p.m. ET kickoff from the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Under coach Sean Payton, the Saints are 6-0 all time in home playoff games following their 20-14 divisional round victory over the Eagles. L.A., however, enters in better current form, having scored 129 points in its past three games. Bookmakers list New Orleans as a 3.5-point favorite, with the over-under for total points scored set at 57 in the latest Rams vs. Saints odds. The winner heads to the 2019 Super Bowl. Before you make any Rams vs. Saints picks and NFC Championship Game predictions, check out what the SportsLine Projection Model has to say.

SportsLine’s proprietary computer model went 176-80 straight up last season and beat more than 95 percent of CBS Sports Office Pool players in 2016 and ’17. It also performed better than 98 percent of experts tracked by NFLPickWatch.com during that span. Additionally, it went 48-34 on A-rated picks against the spread last season, and $100 bettors who have followed it the past two seasons are up nearly $4,000.

The model has continued to nail its top-rated picks in 2018-19, entering the championship round on a blistering 16-6 run. For the season, it is now 30-15 on all top-rated picks, extending its two-year run to a strong 78-49. It also went 170-84 on straight-up NFL picks during the regular season, ranking inside the top 10 on NFLPickWatch.com. Additionally, it is 7-1 on all against-the-spread 2019 NFL playoff picks. Anyone who has followed it is way up.

Now, it has crunched the numbers for Rams vs. Saints (stream live on fuboTV) and simulated the must-see NFC title game 10,000 times. We can tell you it’s leaning over, but it has also generated a point-spread pick that hits well over 50 percent of the time. You can only see that one at SportsLine.

The model knows that in Week 9, the Saints outlasted L.A. 45-35 despite closing as 1.5-point underdogs. New Orleans dominated time of possession, 33:41 to 26:19, while handing the Rams their first loss. The ageless Drew Brees threw for 346 yards and four touchdowns without a turnover. In fact, it was the seventh straight time the home team covered in this rivalry.

New Orleans is well-suited to contain the Rams’ vaunted rushing attack. The Saints rank second in rushing yards allowed (80.2 per game) and yards per carry allowed (3.6).

But just because the Saints are at home and have already handled L.A. doesn’t mean they’ll cover the NFC Championship Game spread.

The Rams, 14-3 just like New Orleans, have looked unstoppable the past three weeks. They embarrassed the Cowboys, an elite defensive team, with 273 rushing yards in a 30-22 divisional round victory. Running back C.J. Anderson has gashed L.A.’s past three opponents for 422 yards and four touchdowns, meaning the Saints can’t rest when Todd Gurley takes a breather.

Sean McVay, at 32 the youngest coach to win an NFL playoff game, devised a brilliant game plan that befuddled the Cowboys. And most observers believe he is as good, if not better than Payton at calling plays. McVay’s quarterback, Jared Goff, has five touchdown passes and no picks the past three weeks.

Who covers in Rams vs. Saints? And which side of the spread cashes well over 50 percent of the time? Visit SportsLine now to see which side of the Saints vs. Rams spread you need to jump on Sunday, all from the computer model that has returned nearly $4,000 to $100 bettors over the past two seasons
